    We plan to visit WDW in August 2016. We will be bringing our 5 year old daughter and wanted to know the following: to get the full magic how many days, What parks and how long does it take for BB Boutique?

    Hi, Randie! When we visited Walt Disney World Resort last year, our little princess was five-years-old and full of pixie dust. I planned a trip that let us visit each of the four theme parks at least once, with a Resort day planned mid-trip. Central Florida can be quite hot in August and I have always found that we get worn out so much quicker during the warmer months. We were all thankful for that Resort day as it gave us a chance to enjoy the splashtastic pool and recharge for the rest of our vacation.

    I would suggest looking at a stay that includes enough days to visit each park once and still have a day to relax. On your Resort day, you could plan a character meal at one of the Resort hotels, such as Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare in Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. This is our favorite character meal, not only for the opportunity to meet Cinderella and Prince Charming but also to laugh with the hilarious Tremaine Sisters. If you do have the ability to stay longer, I would suggest adding a day at Magic Kingdom Park. There are so many unforgettable moments to be made with your princess at this park that it is hard to fit it all into one day.

    Magic Kingdom Park is where you will find one of the locations for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. The other location is inside the World of Disney Store in Disney Springs. Both of these locations are magical places for enchanted princess transformations, which usually take around one hour to complete.

    I hope this helps you plan your visit, Randie. Please stop by again if you have further questions for us.
